At Westpac, we have a simple philosophy; if something’s worth backing, we back it.

Founded in 1817, Westpac is Australia’s first bank and first company. A constant thread through the history of the nation, Westpac started out with the idea to create security and wealth, and to serve the Australian community. This is at the heart of our vision and strategy today – to be one of the world’s greatest companies, helping our companies, communities and people to prosper and grow.

Over the course of almost two centuries, Westpac has contributed to the prosperity of Australia. It has grown, adapted and strengthened to become one of the premier financial institutions in Australia.

The company, along with its 36,000 strong team provides consumer, business and institutional banking services along with wealth management, wealth administration and insurance services, to customers across Australia, New Zealand and the region. Our customers are supported through a nationwide network of 852 branches and 71 business banking centres, home finance managers and specialised consumer and business relationship managers, with the support of cash flow, financial markets and wealth specialists and customer service centers.
